thaky you for your help.
I think the best solution is add translated man pages directly to the upstream
version so everyone could use this man pages (not just Fedora Core users).
Can you please send your work to Federico Lucifredi (federico@speakeasy.net) -
he is man maintainer and he can add your work directly to the upstream man. 
If there is any problem plese add a comment.
